Dallas Police Officer Who Fatally Shot 15 Year Old Jordan Edwards Fired

15-year-old high school freshman Jordan Edwards was leaving a house party with four other teen boys on Saturday night when he was shot and killed by Balch Springs Police Officer Roy Oliver.

His family  wants the officer to face criminal charges. On Tuesday, the officer was fired, three days after killing Edwards.

 

The original police report stated that the boys’ car backed up aggressively towards the officers, but police body cam video shows the car was actually driving away at the time of the shooting.

“You have my assurances my department will continue to be responsive, transparent and accountable,” Police Chief Jonathan Haber fired Oliver said.

Activists welcomed the decision to fire Oliver, but say they will not be satisfied unless the officer faces murder charges.

The family is also calling for the other officers at the scene to be held responsible, saying they treated Edwards’ two brothers, who were also in the car, as common criminals.

“We cannot forget the other boys who were traumatized in this process,” said Frederick D. Haynes III, the senior pastor of Friendship West Baptist Church.

Edwards’ family has asked the public not to protest until after the teen’s funeral.

Edwards’ school remembered him as a good student and athlete, who was on his high school football team.
